4 Pounds!

It was hard to leave Seattle/Tacoma Monday afternoon, so easy to imagine calling in "sick" for the next few months while living on a boat and soaking in the great Northwest. The past week has been difficult, for no other reason than the fact that I had to work. I know. Very spoiled, I am.

The good news is that Sparky is doing well, finally hitting the 4 pound mark and filling out. He should be ready to come home, God willing, in a couple of weeks. Tomorrow marks his 3-week birthday. We continue to pray for his growth and development as he "learns" to do all of the things we take for granted, like maintaining his own body temperature and eating on his own (he is still being fed via a tube through his nose until he is able to suck and swallow on his own which should be very soon). He's a very good boy, never crying like some of the others in the NICU, always very content when Mommy comes to visit.

Heh -- Sparky. That's cool.

(As soon as he "learns" that body temp regulation thing, send him over here to teach a group of us peri-menopausal women. We could use his knowledge.)

Thank you all!

Sisiggy, ha! Isn't it funny how we have to relearn things when we get older? Sheesh. Staying alive should not be so difficult. ;-)
